What's Up?

Yes, what's up?

It's been almost a year since my last post, and yes, this is the longest hiatus I've ever taken since I had this blog more than 10 years ago. It's as if every time I opened the dashboard and ready to type, all words evaporated from my brain, and my fingers were stuck midway to the keyboard.

So, what's up? What's happened during this past 10 months or so, despite my never ending writer (or blogger) block?

Let me start from the big changes first: New President (and Vice President, of course). Yes, I finally had participated in the democracy process of my country- after being golput for a long long time. I know that my chosen candidates are not perfect - but at least they offered some lights in this bleak era. And after more than half year of this new government: am I disappointed? Did I regret my choice? Well, the short answer is no. Even though sometimes they made some doubtful decisions and I didn't always agree with them, I know at least they work hard for this country. And many problems did come from the previous regimes. Cleaning up other people's messes is not easy, and I supported our president and his staff wholeheartedly.

Other news? I have a new position in the office :D It's a personal achievement and I'm proud and all that, but true, with big power, comes big responsibility. Sometimes I had to make some difficult decisions, sometimes I had to swallow my ego and actually listened to my colleagues. Sometimes I had to take risk, endangered my position even let other people snickered at me. But hey, that's life. And I learned so much for this past year tat I think I could face anything now (well, almost anything).

Yofel has turned 5 and I turned 34 (not ashamed of that, really XD). He's getting ready for elementary school and I can't agree more that -as cliche as it sounds- time does fly really fast. He just lost his first milk tooth yesterday and I could still remember clearly when his first tooth showed up. Scary, huh?

I hope I could memorize all moments, precious moments, small or big. I think that's what I realized this past year, where I had a huge gap in this blog of my memories from the last time I posted something. I hope I will never have another blogger block - however busy or chaotic my life would be. At least a simple sentence or some memorable words could capture my days more justifiably.

So today is just the beginning. It's hard to start writing again but I hope my fingers are still capable to fly around the keyboard.

We'll see :)
